Due to some recent changes, it’s harder than ever to get the whole crew together for our weekly recording sessions. Our various job situations are changing, making it harder for us to find windows of mutual availability. I don’t know what this means, long-term. We’ll do what we can.
3:00 Shamus is playing Rise of the Triad
For those of you you’ve never heard of it before, this is Catacombs of the Abyss:
It pre-dates Wolfenstein, and is one of many games that competes for the murky title of “first FPS”.
7:00 Shamus is also playing Puzzle Quest: Galactrix
In this segment we went off-topic and talked about oddball product tie-in games. I mentioned Chase the Chuckwagon. That’s a real game that’s a dog food product tie-in from 1983. My friend David had a copy. Even though we were kids and the videogame industry was in its infancy, we were still able to recognize that the existence of the game was inherently preposterous.
Also mentioned: Avoid the Noid.
I’d never heard of Chex Quest until now.
14:30 Chris is playing Assassins Creed: Freedom Cry
22:30 Chris is playing Plants vs. Zombies: Garden Warfare.
31:30 Josh shares a Project Zomboid anecdote.
39:00 MAIL TIME!
And yes, we answer several questions this week. These are good ones. Remember to send your questions in for next week. (Email in the banner at the top.)
TRIGGER WARNING: We discuss rare vs well-done steak, which to some people is a religious topic. For some reason.
